How to Make an Offer When You’re Ready to Buy a Home

1. Market Research

buy a homeTo improve the chances of landing your dream home, you will need to submit an offer that’s reasonable to the seller. Research the local market and look for the prices similar houses in the area have sold for. Learn about the seller’s personal history with the home, as well. For example, research when they bought it and for how long the home has been on the market.

2. Mortgage Pre-Approval

Most sellers won’t take your initial offer seriously unless you have already been pre-approved by a lender to take out the mortgage for the home. After all, if you can’t secure the loan, you will not be bound by the contract on the offer.

3. Hire a Real Estate Agent

Not only will they handle the tough negotiations, but they are also working in your corner to ensure you land the best deal possible.
